2010 RFIC Symposium: RF Design for New Horizons
Yann Deval, 2010 RFIC General Chair

Welcome to the IEEE Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits (RFIC) Symposium, which will take place in Anaheim, CA, May 23-25, 2010. Our Symposium, held in conjunction with the IEEE MTTS International Microwave Symposium (IMS), opens Microwave Week 2010, the largest worldwide RF/microwave meeting of the year.

The RFIC Symposium continues to build upon its heritage as one of the foremost IEEE technical conferences, increasing each year its impact and reputation of excellence. By bringing focus to the technical accomplishments in RF circuits, systems and devices, the RFIC Symposium has become essential to both the academic and industrial communities. This year's exciting technical program will showcase the latest innovations in RF integrated circuit design with sessions that cover a broad spectrum of topics from cellular and wireless connectivity system ICs, broadband wireless communications, digitally enhanced RF circuits, silicon millimeter-wave ICs, and RF device technology, modeling, and characterization.
